In Constructing classes we saw how to construct a class (by using the class keyword). In this section we see how to reverse the process.
To use the class keyword you have to specify:
- A name for your class.
- A tuple of bases.
- A class body.
In this section we see how to get this information back again. Let’s do the easy stuff first. Here’s our empty class again:
>>> class A(object): ... pass
Here’s how to get the name of the class:
>>> A.__name__ 'A'
And here’s how to get the bases:
>>> A.__bases__ (<type 'object'>,)
